Preferred Solution: BSOD - Event ID 6008 Previous Shutdown was Unexpected - need total shutdown

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: BSOD - Event ID 6008 Previous Shutdown was Unexpected - need total shutdown

Hi -

Most of the 11 BSODs list NVIDIA video as the probable cause.

1. Update your NVIDIA video drivers -

Code:

nvlddmkm.sys Tue Mar 16 22:00:40 2010 (4BA037C8)
nvBridge.kmd Tue Mar 16 21:31:37 2010 (4BA030F9)

NVIDIA --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

One of the BSODs had a bugcheck = 0x124 = WHEA = Windows Hardware Error Architecture - potential hardware failure

Info on 0x124 --> http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...-what-try.html

2. Remove Daemon Tools/ Alcohol 120. A driver common to both sptd.sys is known to cause BSODs.

3. Update your ESET installation to v4.2.64.12 --> http://www.eset.com/download

You need device driver updates. Alienware Support sends me to Dell Support -

http://support.dell.com/support/down...nConsent=False

4. Update all device drivers - chipset (NVIDIA & Ricoh), audio, network. DO NOT download the NVIDIA Video driver from Dell - go to NVIDIA Support per step #1 above.

If BSODs persist after driver updates, run the Driver Verifier --> http://jcgriff2.com/driver_verifier.htm

This has been happening periodically for several weeks It doesn't happen every day so I have been just restarting and continuing on. It seems to happen when the desktop is not even being used. (i.e. middle of the night). Power settings are to never sleep. I've been running core temp because somewhere I saw that it might be related to a thermal event, but that doesn't seem to be the case here. I am not seeing much in the event log other than the event 6008, unexpected shutdown (with no other details). I am not getting bSOD minidumps either in the c:\windows\minidumps folder even though I do have this setup in system security. I've attached the dump files so hope that one of you can help me take a look to see if you can help me to figure it out. The last 6008 was earlier today around 2 AM PDT. Right now I am running chkdsk to see if that turns up anything. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Hoping someone can help me. I am having problems running games. This problem is coming up quite often the last week. During certain games my pc just reboots. No blue screen, just a crash to black screen and a restart following that. I have re-installed my graphics drivers so that shouldn't be the problem right? I ran speccy and mini toolbox as was requested from a user with the same problem a while ago. Thanks for taking a look anyways.

I am getting the above issue which seems to be causing me BSOD. I am not sure how to make make dump files.

Answer:BSOD The previous system shutdown was unexpected.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

I was thinking at first that the shutdown may have been due to overheating as my build is ITX and pretty cramped.  Another forum mod suggested I post here to find out whether or not my system is infected, to rule that out, seeing as how I have been running without any AV software.  I was under the impression that if I browsed carefully, I would avoid problems.  I will be getting software after we determine if there is anything wrong; I wanted to keep the PC as close to the state it was in from the time it shut off so i have not installed any or scanned anything as of now.  Please see link to other post for full story.

I have a box that has been running Windows 2008 Enterprise Server stable for over a year. It's the full install, Hyper-V is installed and runs a couple VMs.

Yesterday the machine had an "unexpected shutdown". I looked through the event logs, and the last event (normal event) was logged approximately 30 minutes prior to the shutdown. No MEMORY.DMP or minidump file was created even though those options are enabled, leading me to believe it wasn't a crash.

Basically I have no idea why the machine shut down, and I have no idea where to look as to find out what happened. I am the only one with a login to that machine, the password is very strong and not written down anywhere. It's unlikely someone else was able to log in and shut it down. In addition a message came up during start-up asking to enter a reason for the unexpected shutdown.

The eventlog does have a 6008 error logged saying that: The previous system shutdown at 9:10:14 AM on 1/30/2009 was unexpected.

Any thoughts?

I've seen issues about this throughout Google and on these forums, but I would much rather have someone help me step to step to figure out what the problem is with these random freezes(causing my computer to shutdown-freeze). 
 
The freezes/random shutdowns only usually occur when I am away from my computer and it enters screensaver/sleep mode etc. My power light stays on, but computer is frozen (causing me to hard reboot it holding the power switch). I also notice when my computer is frozen, my hardware light (orange) is completely off.
 
Sometimes my hardware light isn't a steady orange, sometimes it will come on and sometimes it will be off. 
 
I believe it's a dust build up issue in my fan/heat sink as I noticed here: http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop-runs-hot-turns-off-freezes/

Hi

I have seen many posts on various forums describing similar problems to mine, but no solution. Problem is as follows:

Running Windows Home Premium on HP DX7400 core 2 duo, 2gb memory, Nvidia 8400GS Video Card.

Everything runs perfectly, until I shut down.

I click shutdown and system starts to shut down, BSOD and minidump, then automatically reboots and says it has recovered from an unexpected shutdown.

If I ask it to find a solution it sends me off to some Broadcom Bluetooth driver problem and I have no Bluetooth installed. I did have but its uninstalled with Revo.

I have checked the disks, the memory, updated all Vista Updates and Nvidia drivers, Broadcom Ethernet driver.

Nothing seems to fix the problem. Its totally random. Sometimes it shuts down fine and sometimes not. I had XP on this PC initially and it was fine,

On many of the posts it seems to be only Vista Home Premium users who have this problem, I never see it with Ultimate or Basic Users. I also seems to affect many brands and configs, so it seesm to be a Home Premium problem.

Does anyone know of a fix?

Answer:BSOD on shutdown then recovers from unexpected shutdown

Please try and Reinstall your Blue tooth Driver that is Installed

Hope This Helps,

One thing I like at one computer I have is that it uses mostly the Firefox browser. If this Firefox browser ever closes unexpectedly (crashes) and one has a number of tabs open to various websites, Firefox will ask if you want all of the tabs recovered the next time Firefox is opened.

On another computer I use, it only has Internet Explorer 7. If IE7 unexpectedly closes (crashes) with a number of tabs opened to various websites, is there a way to automatically recover all of these tabbed websites when IE is reopened later?

AFAIK know there is not, and I wish that there was. You're right, Firefox gives you the option to restore a session after a crash or start with your homepage as a new browser session. This is a very useful feature.

Several times over the last few weeks, I noticed that my computer (Dell Optiplex 9020) had rebooted while left on overnight. Then today, without warning, the light blue (not BSOD) WIn 10 Restarting screen appeared while I was doing something noninvasive, like checking email. Then the system rebooted.

The event viewer offered the following clues:

Event ID 109
The kernel power manager has initiated a shutdown transition.
Shutdown Reason: Kernel AP

The process C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe (MARK-9020) has initiated the restart of computer MARK-9020 on behalf of user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found

Hi everyone.

my first post on here so I hope this is the right sub forum for it.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop that in recent days tends to turn itself off when I am for instance trying to open a large video or convert quicktime to mp4 etc. It turns off randomly, there is no shutdown sequence or BSOD displayed. Just screen goes black and power is turned off.

Laptop is an older model (VPCCW25FG.) 8GB RAM, Samsung 256GB SSD.

Im attaching the dump for some assistance as this problem didn't exist till about a month ago.

Thanks for the assistance.

I plug in a flashdrive, scan it, copy a few files, pull it out (it had 3 files on it, never have viruses. Never.). Windows suddenly decides to shutdown. Waited :30 sec, rebooted, logged in and went to Event Viewer>System and filter for 6008 events. Zero, no listings. Can't find anything in the past 20 minutes that looks like a shutdown.

What gives? How can Event Viewer not show the shutdown? How can I find out what the burp was? I've had no issues lately (since a new card in July), Windows has been flawless. I hate it when Windows does something like this and I can't track it down.
Thanks in advance for any interest,

My computer continuously shutdowns every hour or so without any warning. When the computer loads back up a message pops up telling me that I have had an unexpected shutdown. If I click on more information it shows me what the error was (I have the error message copied if you wish to see it) but it makes no sense to me.

I have looked around for a solution but my error message is different to everyone elses.

If anyone could help me with this problem it would be much appreciated, thank you in advance.

System : Dimension 3000 Hello, i'm having a problem with my Mother's computer. It is shutting down (completely powering off) and will not come back on for several hours, sometimes days. When it does power back on, before booting into windows, i get an error message that reads: Alert! Previous shutdown due to thermal event. I do not know what the problem is, both the case fan and power supply fan work properly and i have removed all of the dust from inside the case, including from the cpu heatsink. The case is not missing any expansion slot covers either. When i check the logs in the bios nothing is showing up at all. The computer is out of warranty and i'm stuck on what to do? thanks.

Have you checked, that the front panel air intake is clean?
Open the case and check that both the processor and chipset heatsinks are still firmly attached to the motherboard.

I just rebuilt with a new motherboard, new Intel 6600K, and new RAM. It's assembled on a table top rather than in the case. All other parts are from an earlier build but believed to be in good shape.

I went to sleep about 14 hours ago with my PC still running. I was doing a backup job that would take a few hours, so I just slept.

6 hours later I woke up and notice that the CPU fan is not spinning. Panic. I didn't know if the motherboard had failed, the fan had failed, or even if the PC was running. Nothing displayed on the monitor.

I shut down and rebooted successfully, getting the "Windows did not shut down properly error".

Looking at logs, I see that the backup job completed at 1236 pm and that the Windows shut down at 1237, one minute later. Coincidence? Maybe.

Windows Reliability History gives no info beyond mentioning the unexpected shutdown.

Event Viewer may have more info, but I'm not familiar enough with it to find anything useful.

Do you have any specific help on Event Viewer?

Also interested in any ideas you may have on the cause.

The local power company says there were no failures today in my area.

The PC appears to be working OK for the last 8 hours since I restarted.

The backup job did in fact complete successfully. All files were copied as expected.

I re-ran the backup job to see if the PC would shut down when it finished a second time. It did not.

There are many reasons why a PC " behaves" this way.

These annoying " gliches" may be caused by an overloaded hard drive, overworked CPU, Malware, running 2 AV 's, unnecessary data, Browser addons or you may have unnecessary programs running in the background etc....

Try clearing the event log. Instructions from a Dell support forum:

Start the system.
Press 'F2' to enter System Setup.
Under the Maintenance heading, highlight 'System Event Log' and press the 'Enter' key.
Highlight 'Clear System Event Log' and press the 'Enter' key.

I have been having repeated Unexpected Shutdowns i.e. event id 6008 in the last few months. About 14 in the last 30 days. I have been googling like crazy without being able to figure out a solution.

The problem increased after my system crashed during the middle of a Windows Update few weeks back. When I tried Windows Update again after a few weeks, my system was unusable - became very slow & I had to force restart everytime.

Tried System restore as a first option in Safe Mode, that didnt work.

I downloaded Windows Update System Readiness tool couple of days back, it applied a few fixes & the system is now usable. But it continues to crash at random, & I get the message "Unexpected Shut Down" etc

I looked up minidump files there is nothing for the past few months.

Note this 6008 event happens only when the system is idle, almost never when the system is being used.

Event Viewer info of the last unexpected Shutdown is given below

Hi, kuelderrek
 
Could you possibly go into Event Viewer and look at the Windows Logs, and then take a screenshot of these logs and post them here? I'd also recommend making sure all the drivers for your system are up to date, just to make sure they are not causing any issues. You can find all the drivers for your system here.
 
Best,
Adam

Hi Kim_perfect_712,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
I appreciate the troubleshooting steps done, but as per the performed troubleshooting steps it seems to be a hardware issue and it looks like motherboard has gone bad. As you have told the laptop automatically shut down in BIOS, it clearly confirms that this is a motherboard issue. Hence I kindly request you to take the laptop to the authorised Lenovo service centre for the further assistance and you can get him back working
 
For your reference, please find the link given below to find out the authorised service centre according to your location.

Answer:BSOD (Unexpected shutdown)

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.

Hello good people!

I am definitely not a computer guru - thus my post here - but am learning. Built a few computers with some help from more knowledgeable friends. Can work thru problems with assistance.

So... I installed a fresh Windows 7 Professional 64 bit OS on my new custom system (hopefully you can see my system specs from my registration?) and have had intermittent BSOD's.... never while I have been working on the system.

Seems like they are always waiting for me in the morning when I revive my computer from 'sleep' mode.... or when I do the same after a period of non-use during the day.

I have attached the .zip file of the error report. It seems like there may be two targeted issues "caused by driver":
NTOSKRNL.EXE
PSHED.DLL
I have no idea what these are, what they mean, nor how to fix them. Can you help?

I sincerely appreciate your patience in working with me, a computer neophyte.

Thanks!

I am not super technical but I am hoping I can find some answers here.

Emachines EL1333
Windows 7 Home 64bit

I just purchased this computer from Best Buy in December. Sometime in January it just started crashing randomly. It started with the monitor just suddenly losing the signal and I would have to force it to shut down. Then it started freeezing whenever I watched a video or played a game. The screen would lock up and the computer would make a stuttering noise and then I would get the BSOD. Now it just happens randomly (though I do still get it sometimes when watching a video).

A friend suggested it could be my video card driver. I have updated it to the most current one from the nvidia website and it seemed to work fine for a short time but now it is back to the same thing.

I have uploaded the files from the collection app but perfmon/report didn't give me any results.

Any help is greatly appreciated. I will try to provide any information that I can.

Thanks!

Answer:Unexpected Shutdown BSOD

Hello and welcome to 7 Forums,

Can you please enable Driver Verifier? (see information below)


   Information

Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu.

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter

Your NI Measurement Studio driver appears to be causing problems.


Code:

It's outdated by 11 years, if you wish to keep the program I suggest you update the driver.

I have been dealing with mostly random shutdowns with the occassional BSOD for quite a while.
I have run Memtest 86+ but cannot get it to scan more than about an hour and a half before it freezes. I am not too familiar with how this program is supposed to work but here is what happens. Computer booths up into memtest 86+ starts to run lasts about 15 seconds and reboots this happened twice more before it finally gets going so far I have gotten one error on one Bit at memory 2178.9 MB the assurance code is 154, if this means anything this error was generated after running for almost 2 Hrs. at this point the computer rebooted and ran for about 2 minutes before freezing the code was then 163. On another occasion that I ran memtest 86 the program froze with the screen showing withe lines on a blue back ground with a red bar at the top and a white bar at the bottom.
I have not been able to install the SF_diagnostic_tool, I get an error (see attached file) I have minidump files but don't know how to get them without sf-diagnostic. I am logged in as administrator
THe computer is as follows:
Motherboard: Asus M5A99X EVO
CPU AMD FX8120
Memory Patriot PSD34G16002
Video Card HIS icecube X AMD Radeon HD6950
Monitor Viewsonic VX24553

Answer:BSOD and unexpected shutdown in Windows 7 64 Bit

Hi .
A single error is enough in my books the RAM cannot be trusted anymore, so posting the crash dumps wouldn't
be much helpful until we get rid of the failing module.

You describe a situation where you cannot test the RAM without the PC freezing, how are you loading MEMTest86+
i.e. via a CD / USB?

Start testing the modules one at a time and let each module complete between 8-10 passes or until errors are found,
whichever comes first. You can also determine whether it's a particular slot / module following this logic;

Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

First run it with all the existing/installed RAM modules. If it comes with no error, all is good.

But if it starts showing errors, Stop testing. Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.

Answer:BSOD & Unexpected Shutdown Crash

Although the most likely cause of this error is your Broadcom Widcomm Bluetooth USB Filter, I have to wonder if there's a hardware issue that's causing this, or, if there's a Windows issue causing this.

Please start by running SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt.

Then, try removing your Bluetooth drivers and then install the latest version available from the Dell website.

Also, try disabling your USB controllers (in the BIOS, if possible) and do not plug anything into the USB ports while testing.

Because of the past history that you describe, and the BSOD information, I suspect that these procedures won't fix the system. If it's still under warranty, I'd suggest that you return it to the service center for repair.

For a few weeks now I have been getting recurring BSODs. I ran a memory and disk check and the BSODs stopped for a few days. Then today I got another BSOD.

I'm also a bit confused as to how to read a minidump file. I used the program WhoCrashed and it came up with this:

It is strongly suggested that you check for updates for these drivers on their company websites. Click on the links below to search with Google for updates for these drivers:

I have a custom built PC that in recent weeks started to shut down unexpectedly as if the power was shut off. This system is connected to a TV via HDMI and used for recording TV from cable and streaming internet video. The Event log shows event 41. Also - the digital tuner will periodically fail to detect a signal although the analog tuner behaves normally. This is probably unrelated but I mentioned it just in case.

Answer:Windows Has Recovered From Unexpected Shutdown after BSOD

This looks like it only occurred once. Usually flukes like this can occur for a single instance, and should be of no concern unless it becomes a repeat issue.

Checking the minidump, I saw this was caused by dump_wmimmc.sys corrupting Windows kernel code. The source of it is \??\D:\X-Play\Audition Dance Battle\GameGuard\dump_wmimmc.sys. Does this appear familiar to you? From the looks of it, you are running a game that uses GameGuard anti-cheat software which hooks into the system using the dump_wmimmc.sys driver. This sucker is known for causing bugs time from time. I'm not sure what I can tell you as to what you can do to remedy this. I guess look up info on GameGuard, see if others playing the same game are having similar issues, stuff like that. This seems to be specifically a bug within GameGuard itself, so it's not really that can be resolved outside of either trying to find an update for it or to simply forgo playing the game until they get it fixed. A reinstall may also remedy the issue. In addition, it did occur during your AVG process, so you will want to update AVG or may even be forced to use another AV software right now, since GameGuard is known to conflict with a number of AV engines.

I did notice that your system reported at the time you did the BSOD Report that it was very low on available RAM. You will want to upgrade the RAM on your system as running out of memory can do a number of oddball things. I doubt it's the cause of the problem here, but it will be... Read more

Hello,I have been struggling with the issue with my Windows sleep mode in Windows 7. After it goes into sleep mode, the computer doesn't return from it, it just resets and gives the error "unexpected shutdown." As it is resetting it gives a purple/plue colorful screen of megadeath seen here And as usual Windows can never find solutions to any problems that happens. My inkling is that there is a power struggle when it is sleeping or resuming from sleep...Instinctively, I had uninstalled and reinstalled drivers to the video and audio drivers, USB wireless ethernet, and LAN card. I have tried disabling the USB wireless and lan card, and it still doesn't return from sleep. I have also tried unplugging the monitor, and resetting it. What else can I try, I feel like I have done everything! Thank you for any advice!Specs: Windows 7Asus ATI 790gx motherboardAMD phenom II x4 processor4 GB ram

Answer:BSOD, unexpected shutdown after sleep mode

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Its a shot in the dark, but some motherboard sleep settings are also controlled by the system BIOS under the power settings tab of the BIOS set up menus, you may want to check what those settings are set to as they may be playing a part in why your having this issue.

I started having this issue earlier last week. I leave the computer on to go do something else for a while (as I dislike shutting it down all the time as I think it?s better to just leave it ready and running) and it always stayed on as it's supposed to. However, recently when I come back the system is in the bootup screen asking me how I want to start it, and after the boot it tells me that the system has ?Recovered from an Unexpected Shutdown?.

This is absolutely baffling to me. I have NEVER had a computer behave like this in my life? when any of my other computers shut down it was because of obvious factors like the power cutting out, or because it got too hot and with the OS telling it too to shut off to protect it - but I have NEVER had this happen in addition to a BSOD screen (disappears too quickly to read when the system shuts off and restarts), which displays before the system shuts off on its own and for seemingly no apparent reason at all!

The hardware seems to be in pristine working order as far as I can tell and I haven?t done anything differently to provoke this. However, I DO use BitTorrent but I don?t see how that could have instigated this problem (correct me if I?m wrong please) and I religiously check the system for viruses and other nasties and I also clean the Registry (backing it up every time beforehand) and wipe out useless clutter using CCleaner (never had a problem with using this either).

There are no dumps in that report, which are our primary data source. I see you have no dumps in your Minidump folder. Make sure CCleaner is NOT set to delete memory dumps.

From some other info in the report, I can see your Atheros drivers are too old, dated June 2009. That means they are technically incompatible with Windows 7. Please update them to the latest version.

Answer:Windows has Recovered from an Unexpected Shutdown - BSOD

It looks as if your 2Wire Wireless Adapter driver are the cause. Dated 2007, its age is enough to cause a BSOD.

Please uninstall your wireless drivers and then install a fresh, up-to-date copy.

Use AVG's removal tool to remove all AVG files

Answer:Windows has Recovered from an Unexpected Shutdown - BSOD

Hi -

Please go back and rerun the BSOD file collection app. It was cancelled after 40 seconds of runtime. There are only 8 files in the zip; there should be ~30. Per the instructions, it may need to run for up to 10 minutes.

Skip step #4 as PERFMON was present.

Hello, all. As a word of warning, you are dealing with a technologically challenged lady. I leave my laptop on all the time, in the sleep mode with the cover down when I am not using it. I use Google Chrome and have approximately 8 windows open at a time, most with 20 or 30 tabs at a time. I restart it at least once a week. I received a BSOD earlier today. Unfortunately, I did not write the code down at the time, but restarted Windows in the normal mode then received Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown. I could only do snips of the details but I can retype them for you here:

Hi,

I have recently (just a few days ago) put together a computer using this barebones kit from TigerDirect:AMD A10-5800K 3.8GHz Quad-Core Unlocked APU/Asus A55BM-E mATX MB/4GB DDR3 1600 Patriot Viper Xtreme Memory/500GB Seagate 500GB SATA HDD/2X LED Case Fan/Ultra Xblaster V2 case w/450W PSU Barebones at TigerDirect.com
I have also added a PNY XLR8 120 GB SSD and the computer is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit. Windows is installed to the SSD, which is designated as Local Disk (C:).

The BSODs I have been seeing seem to follow the same pattern. For some reason, my computer will automatically restart (at some point during the night). When I log on the following day, several error messages will show up each saying something was unable to load. As a result, I will not be able to open programs such as Google Chrome, or sometimes even Windows Explorer. After some time, the computer will crash and display a blue screen. Sometimes, it will not automatically crash, and instead just have a useless screen with only the desktop background (no start button or desktop files), at which point I manually shut down using the power button. I have been able to temporarily recover from these blue screens by using System Restore (by either booting from disk or through safe mode), but the next day the computer will have more errors. I originally suspected the issue was related to Restarting, so I disabled automatic windows updates and sleep/hibernation mode. All that has changed is tha... Read more

Download the 13.9 driver from here then use AMD Uninstall Utility to remove all traces of your current driver, CCC etc. Reboot and install the 13.9 driver.



   Note
When installing choose 'Advanced' or 'Custom' (whichever option is available, just not Express) and uncheck everything except the video driver.
Download and run MemTest86+ to test your RAM.



   Note
Run MemTest86+ for at least 8 passes. Ideally set it off before you go to bed and leave it overnight, we're looking for zero errors here. A single error will show something's going bad with your RAM.

About 2 days ago, my computer started randomly turning off and on. I would enter my password and it would load windows and run fine. As of yesterday it shut itself down and after I entered my password, it would give me that message. I would choose "Run Windows normally" and it would go to the screen with the Windows logo with the loading bar underneath of it. The loading bar doesn't have the scrolling green light though, and it just sits there. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Answer:BSOD/PSOD, Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown.

Have you scanned for malware lately?
This: Halmacpi.dll is the Windows HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer)

Caused this to crash:

ntkrnlpa.exe

Gathered info:

Ntkrnlpa.exe is part of the Windows Kernel as are Ntoskrnl.exe and ntkrnlmp.exe. These files install as part of your Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 operating system and are needed at boot time. You'll find them your Windows\System32 folder. Trying to disable or remove these files could have undesirable effects. You'll find more information at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/887675. You'll find information about a vulnerability in the Windows Kernel involving these files at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/931784.

[out of date info somewhat since 7/8 aren't listed but....]

If the kernal gets corrupted, you can try a system repair, info is in tutorials, if it fails you have to wipe and drop a fresh 7.

But I'd be checking for malware before going there plus it could be RAM causing issues, and without checking that first, no amount of OS repair/reinstall will stop the problem.

This is my first post, so I apologize in advance for omitting any important information or additional ignorance on my part. I'm far from a computer expert.

My Gateway NV53 had a meltdown in late July (unable to boot, would crash in safe mode, unable to restore, etc.) and I was forced to restore the laptop to factory settings, losing all my files in the process.

It was working fine for about a month until last week it unexpectedly shutdown. On rebooting I got the BSOD Stop: c000021a error. After about 4 tries I finally got the advanced boot menu to load the system/startup repair, which seemed to fix the problem after about 30min or so.

I thought everything was fixed, but I got the same problem yesterday afternoon: suddenly crashes (no BSOD, just shuts down), with the c000021a error on re-start until I run startup repair which fixes the problem.

Any ideas on why this keeps happening? I have read that c000021a is often caused by 3rd party software updates interfering with WinLogon, which compromises the security of the system, but the crashes aren't occurring after downloading anything or installing new software (intentionally, at least). The first crash happened while I was using Skype, the second time while watching a YouTube video.

When I reboot after the startup repair, my Norton Antivirus definitions are out of date and must be updated, and there are always Windows Updates to install upon shutdown. This past time I also had to re-install Chrome.... Read more

Okay, for the past 3 days my laptop has automatically shutdown twice.
My laptop is at least 6 years old and it never acted like this before in his lifetime.
Can anyone tell me what's causing it?

Things to keep in mind are:
- I keep my laptop open usually 24/7
- I don't think it's a virus cause I've never changed my way of using it for the past years and I scan often and it all returned negative (virus, malware, spyware)
- No hardware/software changes so everything is at it's version of when it was working (I don't update)
- Not a heat problem. I monitor my system temperature and it was 65-75?C at the time of shutdown

I've attached the eventlog during shutdown too if that will help.

Thanks!

I initially thought it was a cpu heating issue since i had a stock cooler, I changed it for an evo 212, but the same issue applies. Could it possibly be the PSU, even though it powers the computer 99% of the time and fan seems to be working fine? I went back into the windows event viewer and I have a link of the past week of errors that have been occuring, I just dont know what they mean. any help?https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=42B9E1D1DBB4DB7C%...
specs are as follows: amd 8350 4.0ghz, gigabyte 990fx mobo, gtx 760 nvidia gpu, 650W PSU silverstone ac input 115-240Vac 60-50Hz, 8 gb ddr 3 ram.
temperatures doesnt reach more than 58 degrees under full load usually around 50 range.

this is the most recent incident.

Hi, my computer randomly crashes at various moments. The screens just freeze but the computer keeps running. I have to hard reset every time it crashes. It used to happen very often but after removing drivers and updating them it's way less frequent. It still happens atleast once a day.

When I look at the even viewer I get these error at the moment of the crash, im not really sure what to do with these.

I searched a lot and didn't really find anything useful to fix the problem... Thank you for your time.

Answer:Screens freeze without BSOD, event id 10110 and 6008

Hi TuCkNy.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.

So there is a chance that it BSODs but crash dumps are not recorded.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Hey folks. I would appreciate if you could lend a hand with this issue, as I haven't had any luck so far.
 
My PC has been restarting instead of shutting down when I initiate a shutdown. I did a clean boot and tried it, as well safe mode, and it still replicates the problem. The BSOD I occasionally get before the restart is KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE
 
Even though the BSOD doesn't show up every time, I am getting a minidump each time it restarts with the KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE error. I've included the two most recent minidumps for analysis if it helps solve the problem.

Minidump 1: http://speedy.sh/WM23P/092014-21796-01.dmp
Minidump 2: http://speedy.sh/4UXvm/092014-24046-01.dmp
 
Where do I go from here?
Much obliged for your help,
Faithisreason

^ This is what I saw this morning I didn't see the BSOD.

Answer:BSOD overnight "Windows recovered from an unexpected shutdown."

Welcome .

A single dump is nothing to worry about in my opinion.
This was seem to be a combination of Sandboxie and an outdated Ethernet driver,

Code:
lmvm rt64win7
Browse full module list
start end module name
fffff880`05ce7000 fffff880`05d87000 Rt64win7 (deferred)

Timestamp: Tue Sep 27 17:50:33 2011
http://carrona.org/drivers/driver.php?id=Rt64win7.sys

I wouldn't change a thing until it start to be a real problem and the BSOD start becoming more
frequent where is we need to start interfering.

Keep us posted as to how things develop in the next week or so .

Answer:BSOD after shutdown, error 0x00000d1, shutdown not complete

Hello Johny, for a Stop 0xD1, we need to see the crash dumps to have the closest look. The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. If anything is there, upload it. If not, wait for the next system crash. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

I've been getting the following error message over the past 2 days:

"This system is shutting down. Please save all work in progress and log off. Any unsaved changes will be lost. This shutdown initiated by NT Authority\System.

Windows must now restart because the DCOM Server Process Launcher Service terminated unexpectedly."

The computer then begins a 60 second countdown and then reboots.

I am using Windows XP Home Edition with Internet Explorer 7.0

None of my scanning programs (Norton AntiVirus, Registry Mechanic or AdWareAlert) is picking up anything.

Anyone have any ideas on what the problem might be?

Answer:Unexpected Shutdown

Run this SF Diagnostic Utility using the Grab All button and post the zipped file as per the instructions. Allow time for it to complete--Up to five minutes. This will give us some insight into the "PC" and provide the system and event logs. It should also include any dumps that were produced. Without that, guessing is just a shot in the dark.

Answer:Help with Unexpected Shutdown

Hi there Fobwashed,

Is your computer a desktop or laptop computer? Does your computer shutdown at a certain time or just in random intervals? If your computer is a desktop computer, which I am thinking it is, how much power(watts) are you running? What is the brand/model if your power supply?

Hello Bleeping Computer folks, I have a question.
 
When I check Event Viewer, I saw an "Unexpected shutdown" error, although the shutdown was performed properly (using Shut down from the Start button).
 
Can somebody explain this? I use Windows 7 Ultimate.
 
Thank you.

Answer:Unexpected shutdown?

Unexpected shutdown error messages appear automatically in Event Viewer...anytime that Windows reboots from an unexpected situation...whether the cause be heat, hardware, software, malware or whatever.  Anything that causes an unplanned reboot while working in Windows...will result in this message.  Loss of power to the system will also be among potential causes of this message being noted.
 
I suggest looking at all the other errors reflected in Event Viewer to try to find clues.  Another source would be any data reflecting BSOD situations.

Hi,

I was using my laptop for general browsing, when all of a sudden, it turned off. At first, I tried turning it back on, but it wouldn't, so I plugged in the charger and it turned on. It then reported that windows hadn't shutdown safely etc.

The thing is though, I checked the battery levels after re-starting, and it was at 25%. I have set my power options so that the laptop goes into hibernate when the battery is at 10% and at Do Nothing when it is at 25%.

So please can someone explain what happened?

Answer:Unexpected Shutdown

No one can tell you what happened, but we can offer educated guesses.
The first cause would be overheating. Do you know what the temps of your computer are during load.
Did you have a BSOD, did the screen turn blue?
